R. SCOTT PLACED IN CHARGE OF CORPORATION'S AFFAIRS BY MUNCIE JUDGE Suit Said to be Friendly One For Purpose of Enabling the Card Company to Get Plant Here in Operation Receiver Hopes to be Able to Start Things in Few Weeks. The Telbax Corporation, with factory and home office in Fairmount, has been placed in the hands of a receiver, the appointment of O. R. Scott of this place as receiver having been made by Judge Murray of the Delaware Superior court at Muncie last Saturday, although announcement of the court's action was not made until this week. The action was taken on petition of certain creditors for the purpose of protecting the property of the corporation and the interest of creditors until the plant could be financed and put into operation and on a paying basis. The suit for receiver is understood to be a friendly one for the sole purpose of protecting the interests of all concerned. J. W. Culp, president and general manager of the corporation claims to have sufficient orders in sight to keep the plant running full time for two years, but because of the general business conditions during the past year he has not been able to sufficiently finance the enterprise to purchase necessary machinery and put the plant into operation. The action placing the affairs of the corporation in the hands of a receiver is for the purpose of enabling it to do this. Upon his appointment Mr. Scott 1, ;ave bond in the sum of $10,000 and immediately tok possession of the plant, under orders from tJ;3 court to put in in operation at the earliest possible date. Just how soon he will be able to do this Mr. Scott is now unable to state, but will make an effort to get the affairs of the corporation straightened out so that operations may begin early in the coming month.

They will not delay so long: that their subscription will not count in the way of votes, but w ill give it before next Tuesday, August 23rd when the last Extra Votes will be given r better, they will subscribe TODAY. Those candidates ho are prone to think of the jrmxl wk they did yesterday, the number of subscriptions they solieited-yesterday, are reminded that TODAY and TOMORROW MUST SEE RESULTS, if YESTERDAYS RECORD BE M AINTAINED. It makes no difference HOW WELL candidates worked last week, if they do net work THIS WEEK and NEXT WEEK, while the EXTRA VOTES are being given, they will be left far behind in the race for a FORD SEDAN CAR.

Editor The News: I have just landed from a most delightful trip from Seattle, through the famous "Inside Passage.' Thousands of rocky, mountianous, heavily forested islands, large and small, dotted, our course. Many of these mountain tops alcng the way were snow crowned and here and there, all along the course we culd see streams, large and small, tumbling down the mountain side, and finally making their way over numer- ous falls and rapids to the rocky shore, then plunging into the sea. In soma places we passed between cliffs only a few rods on either side of the ship. anj almost all the time land could be hand and an unusually congenial group of people on board, the trip was most pleasant from start to finish. Today I board the S. S. Princess Royal for a trip of almost a thousand miles yet up along the coast of Alaska, calling at such ports as Wrangell, Ketchikan, Juneau and Skagway, before returning here to begin my trip to the east through Mount Robinson Park, Jasper National Park and Winnipeg, Canada. My trip this summer has been very pleasant from the start. I've planned my stop overs to include most of the places of unusual interest, and most of my side trips from these places have been taken on foot, so thus I've been enabled to see places that auto- ists couldn't even approach. v In Colorado I had the pleasant no velty of seeing Colorado Springs, The (Garden of the Gods, Manitou, Che- yenne Canon and Cheyenne Mountain, and part of Pike's Peak from an airplane. Of course later t "took in these samj places on foot and added a number of others including the Cave of the Wlrnis, Rainbow Falls, climbing Mt. Manitou, etc. By auto I made the scenic trip to Cripple Creek. I came through devastated Pueblo and the upper Arkansas Valley on the first train over the D. ez R. C, after the flood, the first train In twei ty-one days. Even then we were a full two hours traversing the first sixteen miles out of Pueblo on the new track. I spent two days in Leadville, known as the highest city in U. S. A. There t "explored the well known California Gulch, climbed some of the snow-clad peaks of the Continetal Divide, and spent nearly a day going through one of the large gold, silver and cop- J rer mines. j In and around Salt Lake City, I j spent nearly two weeks, visiting many ; of "the picturesque canyons near by, ; enjoying several of the world-famed sunsets at Salt Lake, etc. One day I spent in visiting the largest copper mines in the world at Bingham, and other days I had the novelty of swim ming in Great Salt Lake, and again in Saratoga Hot Serines. day I spent visiting at the Goldwyn studios, and other days bathing in the Pacific. I took a number of hikes through the mountainous regions near Santa Cru2, as well as along the interesting sea cliffs. From Boulder Creek I hiked out to Big Basin, about twelve I miles distant. There I spent almost the full day (from 8 till 4) among the "Big Trees, then hiked back again that evening. This is one of the most enjoyable as well as interesting one Iday trips I've taken. It would take jmany pages to describe the rugged ! scenery along the route, and many more to tell the interesting things I j learned about those "Big Trees, the monarchs of the forest. I wasn't impressed very favorably ' by windy, foggy, cold Frisco, although j I had a number of pleasant trips from S there including Twin Peaks, Golden Gate, and Golden Gate Park, Seal I Rocks, Cliff House, etc. I One of my strenuous trips was tak-jen from Sisson, Calif. From there ! another fellow and I started at 6 j o'clock one evening. That night we j camped at timber line some eight miles distant and 6000 feet higher. Here we ran across five other fellows and at 4 the next morning we began the ascent of Mt. Shasta. At Sisson jwa had had spikes putin our shoes ; and secured Alpine sticks necessary , in the ascent. Practically all the way j to the top from timberHne we had to climb very steep ice slopes over a l large glacier. In some places the slope was so steep that I could stand erect and easily reach the ice in front of me. Progress was very difficult and necessarily slow. Just a few minutes after noon, three of us climbed into the crater at the top of the mountain. The rest had turned back quite a while previously. We were cold, nearly tired out, bruised in many places from our falls, 2 and nearly blinded from the intense flight reflected from the vast fields of ! . . - A, - . . snow, il was warm in ie eraser from the jets of steam and boiling water and the snow had long since been melted away. For a long time we rested here, then climbed to the crest of the rim where for miles and miles we could overlook the mountains and valleys of northern California, for Shasta is one of the most majestic peaks in the U. S. Then we began the descent, difficult at first, but growing easier and less dangerous as we neared the timber line again. This part took us but two hours. Then we joined our companions, who were waiting at camp, and by sundown we were in Sisson again. These are a few of the places I've stopped over, and some of the most interesting. Almost any one of these would have made my trip seem well worth while. In a few weeks again 111 be back in the Hoosier tsate. EDGAR L. MORPHET.

The sure way of building a perman ent civilization is to build It of mat eriat that Is eternal. The Sabbath is the day and the church is the place where people meet to consider these things. Worship brings man into communion with God who is the source of all life, the embodiment of things that are eternal. We ought to find our way to the house of God each Sabbath day where we may learn and worship. "You are invited to attend au the services of the church. Sun- Hon. Henry J. Paulus, aged 63, one of the most prominent residents of Grant county, for eighteen years judge of the Grant circuit court and one of the best known jurists in the state, died at 7 o'clock Monday evening at the family residence in Marion, following a nine days' illness, of cerbral hemorrhage. The deceased is survived by a wife, one daughter, Mrs. Earl Templin, of Alma, Michigan, and a son, Clarence, of Indianapolis. ' Judge Paulus was a life member of the Elks lodge, was a member of the Masonic order, of the Knights of Pythias and of the Odd Fellows. Few men in Indiana were better and more favorably known in the legal profession than Judge Paulus. Hi: " record on the bench was nothh short of remarkable. His decisioi were a model, and when once give were considered final. The Susprer. Court seldom reversed his opinions. Lawyers from all over Indiana referred to his legal work and he was frequently quoted in important trials. He was fearless in the performance of his duty, exacting in the requirements that lawyers present their cases in accordance with the law, but fair and impartial in his deliberations.
